Most people juggle a lot between personal and work life, and hence find it difficult to give time to things that are really important. Cooking food for self or for your family is a complicated and time-consuming process for most people in today’s world. However, there are a few tricks that you keep in your sleeve which make your time in the kitchen very productive and enjoyable. Let’s take a look at a few such tips:
- Use All-In-One Gravy
Indian cuisine is largely based on the use of different masalas in addition to onion, tomatoes, ginger and garlic. Most of the homemade food can be prepared by using this paste as the base. So, why waste time making this paste every single day? The best approach is to make a large amount of this paste and store it in your refrigerator. This way, you can use it as and when needed and will save a lot of cooking time as well.
- Use potatoes to reduce excess salt
It often happens that you add a little bit of extra salt to a curry or gravy in a hurry. Fortunately, there is a way by which your extra salty curry won’t go waste. Add a few slices of raw potato in the curry that has extra salt and cook it for around 15 minutes. This way, the potatoes absorb the extra salt and offer the curry its original taste. Make sure to remove the potatoes once the curry starts tasting normal.
- Use Spill-Free Grater
Grating vegetables is a cumbersome task and can create a lot of mess in the kitchen. To avoid this, you can keep a Spill-Free Vegetable Grater handy with you which also comes with a storage container. This handy kitchen accessory does not create any mess as the grated veggies are stored in a container underneath the grater.
- Keep a Masala Stand Handy
Indian food and spices go hand in hand, which is why it is important to keep the traditional spices like turmeric powder, chilly powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, asafetida etc handy in your kitchen. You can use a Masala Set for this purpose as it comes with different small containers with spoons that provide you quick access to these masalas as and when needed.
- Use Non-Stick Cookware Set
A non-stick cookware set is a must have in every kitchen because of the versatility and convenience it offers while cooking food. Non-stick utensils ensure even dissipation of heat and help you prepare food quickly. Basic non-stick cookware items to be kept handy include a Kadhai with Glass Lid, Mini Multi-Snack Maker, Grill Pan and Tadka Pan.
